The SO has mentioned repeatedly that he's really proud of how far I've come along since I first came to Australia. I was extremely socially awkward and used to run away from his friends, refusing to meet new people and never looking them in the eye. It would take a long time to warm up to people and I had very few friends.
But now, we welcome total strangers to our home - I've learnt to be confident in talking to them about just about anything and have learnt so many things about Brisbane through their eyes.
Now I'm looking forward to making it to the next one!
